    Details on the Recent Upgrades to GoGrid: East Coast Load Balancers, New Dedicated Server Images & 16 GB RAM Images

    Wednesday, August 4th, 2010 by

    Right on the heels of the GoGrid 3.0 release, we needed to be sure that we didn’t slow our momentum down. To that end, this week we have released some new features to GoGrid which are important to highlight.

    UPGRADE_sticky

    We have 3 exciting features, specifically:

    • East Coast Load Balancers
    • New GoGrid Dedicated Server Images
    • 16 GB RAM on GoGrid Cloud Servers

    East Coast Load Balancers

    As we work towards obtaining full feature parity within a few months in our East Coast Datacenter launch, one of the first items that we enabled was that of Load Balancing. Just like in the West Coast Datacenter, Load Balancing on the East Coast remains FREE. With the rollout of Load Balancers in the East Coast, all GoGrid users now have the ability to deploy 6 total Load Balancers for free, 3 in each Datacenter.

    Partner MuleSoft Enables Enterprise Tomcat (Cloudcat) within the GoGrid Cloud

    Tuesday, February 9th, 2010 by

    Today, MuleSoft, who specializes in enterprise-class software, and GoGrid announced the availability of the industry’s first commercially-supported cloud-based Apache Tomcat offering known as Cloudcat as a GoGrid Partner Server Image (GSI). The Partner GSI by MuleSoft contains their product Cloudcat which allows developers and QA personnel to build and test web applications easily in the cloud using a pre-installed & configured Apache Tomcat application server. Having Cloudcat contained within a Partner GSI is important to GoGrid users because it eliminates the need of having to do a manual Tomcat download, installation or configuration. Apache Tomcat is the world’s most widely used application server, with over 1 million downloads per month and over 70% penetration in the enterprise datacenter.

    More information about MuleSoft and Cloudcat can be found within the GoGrid Exchange on the MuleSoft Partner Page. There are currently two MuleSoft/Cloudcat images available on GoGrid:

    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 (32-bit)
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 (64-bit)

    These images have a monthly (recurring) cost of $29/server (in addition to standard GoGrid RAM and Bandwidth charges).

    Image “End of Life” Notification for 2 Specific CentOS & RHEL GoGrid Images

    Friday, January 22nd, 2010 by

    In an effort to be as proactive as possible, GoGrid has officially notified select customers of the removal (End of Life – EoL) of two specific GoGrid images. The users that were notified are ones that are actively using the images. On 2/9/10, GoGrid will be removing the following images from the GoGrid image repository:

    • CentOS – CentOS 5.1 (64-bit) w/ Apache 2.2
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux – RHEL 5.1 (64-bit) w/ Apache 2.2

    I’m sure that some of you will have questions about this. In anticipation of this, I have compiled some quick Q&A’s:

    Question: What does the removal of these images mean?

    Answer: Simply that after the removal date, they will no longer appear within the GoGrid Image Selection widget.

    Question: I have server(s) deployed that use these images? Will they continue to function?

    Answer: Yes, there is no change to how your server(s) will function if they are using one of these EoL-ed images. Just be sure that you keep everything current within those servers.
